Teaser Tuesday (Jan 26)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • - Grab your current read
  • - Open to a random page
  • - Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • - BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • - Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder

"When I fall asleep for real,
I'm a butterfly,
floating from flower to flower.
There's no color but I still feel
peaceful and happy.
At home.

A nice dream
until a shadow comes,
and swallows the warm sunshine."

► I actually just finished this the other day, but seeing as I am still undecided about what book to read next, I figured I might as well use it for today's Teaser Tuesday. Such a fantastic read! Review is in the works. :)

Feel free to leave a comment with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here!
